Mon­talto Vine­yard & Olive Grove, Vic­to­ria

Morn­ing­ton Penin­sula is a re­gion re­plete with rolling hills, or­chards, olive groves, his­toric man­sions

— and more than 200 vine­yards spe­cial­is­ing in cool-cli­mate va­ri­etals, such as Pinot Noir and Chardon­nay.

Visit Mon­talto for much more than your stan­dard wine tast­ing. Awarded a five-star rat­ing by Aus­tralian wine critic James Hal­l­i­day, the es­tate is renowned for its wel­com­ing at­mos­phere, in­ti­mate cel­lar door and the beauty of the grounds that in­clude an olive grove, ac­claimed restau­rant and cafe, sculp­ture walk and wet­lands.

Dine at Mon­talto Restau­rant or en­joy a pri­vate pic­nic at one of 10 se­cluded spots where the on-site chef will pre­pare a feast for you and a group of up to eight friends, com­plete with lo­cal pro­duce and, of course, Mon­talto Wine.
